ANNE FRANK AND THE CHILDREN OF THE HOLOCAUST by Carol Ann Lee

ANNE FRANK AND THE CHILDREN OF THE HOLOCAUST

Age Range: 12 - 15

KIRKUS REVIEW

Reworking much of the information she presented in her earlier volume, A Friend Called Anne (2004), Lee interweaves information about other children who were placed in camps during the Holocaust, rarely surviving or more likely hidden in a variety of situations. Gleaned from articles, interviews and other personal diaries, the plight of these children is explained through circumstances that involved numerous efforts by some very generous and brave people working either through religious or underground organizations. Yet the bulk of the volume is another rehash of Anne Frank’s life before the war, during her hiding and final days at Auschwitz. Insight into the many children who were hidden and managed to survive is more strongly presented in previous publications, by Susan D. Bachrach in Tell Them We Remember (1994) or Laurel Holliday’s compilation Children in the Holocaust and World War II (1995). Includes black-and-white photos mostly available in other volumes.
